Saying goodbye

As previously posted about on the blog, our friend Philipp from Germany came to visit for a few weeks. For those who do not know, he was originally in the US as an exchange student in high school, and we have all remained friends since, with a few international visits back and forth.

Philipp left to fly home today (Saturday), so last night we had a little get together at Ashley's mom's house. The evening was lots of fun, of course, with a grill, fried potatoes, and smores.

It is really hard to say goodbye to someone you love - especially if you know you will not see them for a long time.

Last night was also a bit hard, because Ashley's mom is probably going to be moving and selling her house. We have spent countless evenings at Ashley's house - playing board games, playing video games, drinking, eating, talking... etc etc. Doing all the wonderful things that make life wonderful. It is one of those places that you just cannot describe - I suppose the right word is home.
And, although a few friends were missing, it was a fitting goodbye.

So, last night was bitter sweet. I love where we've been, I love where we are, and I look forward to where we will all be.

I'll miss you Philipp, but we will be together again some day!
I'll miss you Ashley's house, but you will always be in my heart!

A part of you has grown in me. And so you see, it's you and me together forever and never apart, maybe in distance, but never in heart.

Good-byes are never easy, but you do have your memories.

And a good excuse to visit Germany. :)
